Inside was a parachute bag Schindler had ordered from a company in Belgium.

I think I know who had the package...

Two fb- headlines this week, now the bar towels. Is some admin sundowning or something?

The year is 2035. A lone postman wanders the wasteland, connecting parcels of history with a tattered present. 
A long-forgotten letter in hand, he approaches the wasting villa of an elderly couple. "Could it be our long-lost son?" "Word about what happened in the other colonies?"

Trembling, the husband starts to open the envelope....
"We've been trying to reach you about your Car's extended warranty"

No, it was a Costner film - they would discuss it painfully earnestly for hours on end

Eventually, Guinness is going to get a new executive who will find the list of who gets towels.    They will send out the towels, no letter, no explanation, no nothing.   To everyone.  Everyone except me.

I have a badass Jagermeister bar towel.
 
2021-11-28 4:21:28 PM  
I used it as my golf ball rag till I realized it's probably worth a million dollars based on the scarcity and demand.

I really liked the novel, but yeah, the movie was a wasteland of suck.

/Sundiver would make an awesome film
//as long as they keep Costner away from it

I actually have one ( thanks sales rep from Pacific beverage when I worked at a liquor store ).

Fwiw , I liked the postman. It had Tom Petty. Albeit in a small role . I also liked waterworld.

Guinness towel Now that's a name I've not heard in a long time. A long time.

They should have asked Tom Hanks to deliver it.
 
2021-11-28 5:57:15 PM  
I had mine.  it got lost in a closet somewhere.  I always wait until the last day to pack before moving.  there's someone who will find it one day, like an old crusty sock under  the bed.  eww.
 
2021-11-28 6:37:39 PM  
I never got mine...dammit.

Drew...get on that, please!

My wife and I just moved and I found mine when we were unpacking a box. I was pretty happy to see it.
 
2021-11-28 6:53:00 PM  
I'm still waiting for my towel.  It feels like it has been 15 years, but there have been some issues with USPS, so I'm sure it's on the way.

I was thinking it was a fruitcake. I would send that back.

There are lots of Guinness bar towels available on FleaBay if you don't mind parting with a few greenbacks.

That one pre-dates my time on Fark, and I've been here a long, long time.

Can't believe I've been here for 20 + years... that's kinda pathetic.

It could be worse. You could have spent that time on Something Awful.

A couple of weeks ago I got a package returned that I sent in January to my mom in Brazil. $100 for the ranch and cavenders spices I sent to go on a vacation.

Somebody at the p.o. moved a cabinet and hey! a package.

A good many years ago, I bought something on ebay. Didnt get it. The guy claimed he sent it, I claimed it as fraud since I never got what I paid for.  (He didn't have tracking on it either. )
Well an entire year goes by. Package shows up on my door. It was the thing I bought. Postmarked for the day he sent it. Just a year late.  Wonder where the fark it was that whole time.

Someone at the apartment I lived in decades ago is going to be confused.
